General description

β-Tubulin belongs to the subfamily of tubulin, which is the major building block of microtubules. β-Tubulin has a molecular weight of 55kDa. β-Tubulin structure is characterized with core of two β-sheets enclosed by α-helices. It also contains an N-terminal domain with the guanine nucleotide-binding region, an intermediate domain with taxol-binding site, and a C-terminal domain that contains the binding surface for molecular motor proteins. Human β-tubulin consists of seven isoforms (βI (class I), βI (class II), βIII (class III), βIVa (class IVa), βIVb (class IVb), βV (class V), and βVI (class VI)).
Monoclonal Anti-β-Tubulin (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the hybridoma TUB 2.1 produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from a mouse immunized with purified rat brain tubulin.

Specificity

The antibody recognizes all five isoforms of β-tubulin (β1-β5). It reacts with the β-Lc and β-Sc fragments in the carboxy-terminal part of β−tubulin in immunoblotting. The antibody may be used to localize β−tubulin in cultured cells or tissue sections.

Immunogen

tubulin from rat brain.

Application

Monoclonal Anti-β-Tubulin antibody produced in mouse has also been used in
  • 2-dimensional electrophoresis
  • sperm motility
  • immunohistochemistry,
  • immunofluorescence
  • immunoblotting
  • immunocytochemistry

Monoclonal Anti-β-Tubulin antibody produced in mouse has been used in western blotting.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Mutation in the gene leads to various neuronal migration disorders such as lissencephaly, pachygyria and polymicrogyria malformations. B2702 peptide binds to β-tubulin and inhibits NK cell cytotoxicity and it influences microtubule polymerization, which damages cytoskeleton organization and chaperone-like activity of tubulin. β-1 tubulin also known as class VI or TUBB1, plays a vital role in platelet production, and is considered to be a potential biomarker candidate for immune thrombocytopenia (ITP).

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline containing 15 mM sodium azide.
